SHIELD Security Systems Franchise Opportunities – History

SHIELD Security Systems was founded in 1976 by owner Ken Jezioro, a longtime police officer near Buffalo, New York, who had the misfortune of having his own home burglarized. When he tried to find an affordable company to secure his home he became so frustrated with the choices that he decided to create his own. He used the knowledge and experience he gained on the streets as an investigator and crime prevention officer to build the SHIELD Security Systems brand.
